Wallfahrt nach Kevelaer

€17,99 (incl. VAT)

The German pilgrimage place of Kevelaer, close to the frontier with the Netherlands, is famous for its large basilica and the organ it houses built in 1907, which is one of the largest church organs in all Germany.

In this recording, this instrument magnificently replaces an entire orchestra.

Felix Weingartner set Heinrich Heine's ballad "Die Wallfahrt nach Kevlaar" for voice and orchestra. This work can now be heard as a premiere recording in an arrangement for baritone and organ at the location of the plot. The programme by René Perler and Romano Giefer is complemented by sacred songs of A. F. Kropfreiter (also first recording), J. G. Rheinberger and P. Cornelius.
